The meeting with Salvini
Matteo Salvini, leader of the League, went to visit Liliana Segre in the afternoon after the controversy of the past few days on the parliamentary commission against anti-Semitism and racial hatred and after the statements released yesterday by the former Interior Minister about the threats suffered by the senator for life ("I also receive threats, every day. The threats against Segre, against Salvini, against anyone are very serious"). The meeting took place in the home of Segre itself. According to the leaked, the senator and the leader of the League met around 5pm. Matteo Salvini was with his daughter. No other representatives of institutions would have been present.
Monday to demonstrate will be the associations Bella Ciao, Milan !, Anpi and Aned have promoted a demonstration at 6.30 pm in front of the Holocaust Memorial entitled "Milan does not hate: together for Liliana" after the news that the former deportee who survived Auschwitz receives 200 messages of hatred and threats a day. "In response to this, over 200 messages of peace and solidarity will be read during the presidium. A way to huddle in a collective embrace with Senator Segre and make her feel that we will always defend the memory and memory as the only antidote to hate spills", we read in the appeal that was signed by unions, parties, associations such as ACLI and ARCI. The event will be held in front of Platform 21 from where Segre left as a child, together with her father, towards the head of extermination, in 1944.

Despite the known ambiguities of the League, with very cordial relative political and organizational collaborative relations with a fringe of black extremism, the regional League's president, Attilio Fontana, underlines how "it is absurd that we should resort to a measure of this kind in a civil and free society like ours for an excellent person like Senator Segre, who already had dramatic experiences in her life. I don't believe that Italy is racist and that these leaps of old stuff are widespread. I think few say these things because they believe in it but more out of ignorance. " Instead the secretary of the Lombard League Paolo Grimoldi speaks of "complete and absolute solidarity, without ifs and buts", unless contradicted immediately after: "Register that – he adds – all those who today are on the left are indignant and rightly worried about the shameful and cowardly threats addressed to Senator Segre do not flinch and do not utter a word when death threats are addressed to Matteo Salvini with writings on the walls, posters in the parades where puppets are burned with his likenesses, letters with bullets ".
